All Costa Rica Brides to be...

Recommended Posts

We are getting married at Flamingo Beach Resort in February.  Neither of us have ever been there.  It took me a while to narrow it down to one location and so far everything has gone smoothly with the planning.  They have a wedding planner at the resort that has been wonderful.  They also have a great location for a reception that overlooks the water.  I can not wait!


Anyone have any cute ideas for a welcome bag for the guests?  I was thinking about putting them together before hand and shipping them to the resort to put in everyones rooms.

My fiance and I just got engaged on November 23rd 2010. We are planning our destination wedding in Costa Rica on July 29th 2011. We really like Costa Verde and would appreciate any insight from anyone who has been there or had their wedding there more specifically. Did you like it? Would you recommend it?


We plan to have between 20-30 guests and are looking for information with regards to prices for the ceremony (the beach vs. their pavilion), a small reception (options?), flowers, music, photographer, videographer, officiant, etc. 


Any help would be much appreciated. We have not actually planned anything yet- just researched alot of locations and like Costa Verde the best, so any insight, opinions or suggestions would be helpful!

A couple of things I want to shed some light on.

This time of year in Manuel Antonio is hot & humid and some of the Costa Verde rooms do not have a/c (make sure you get a/c the day of while you get ready otherwise you will be sweating).

It may rain but CV has a great event center. You can hold ceremony & reception there and then head down to Playa Espadilla (park entrance) with some umbrellas for some beach pics (photogs should be able to run you down to the beach for this (5min away).


Here is a CV wedding:



I also suggest looking into Los Altos, great prices, brand new condos, Karolas Restaurant is a great venue:




Don't sweat the rain so much, if it is not a down pour you can always get some nice photos. This wedding took place under a drizzle:

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
